The Money Is Working
The Logan Improvement club, in demanding that the city proceed at
once to use the $100,000 in the municipal dock fund to erect a new dock build
ing is laboring apparently under the erroneous impression that the city is
paying interest on this money and getting nothing for it.
The money has been working all the time. In fact it has saved more
than its interest the last year. By having it the city was able to save the in
terest on $160,000. This sum was voted for bridge and paving bonds. It was
not all needed at once, so the city just temporarily borrowed the dock money
and staved off the issuing of the $160,000 bonds for .a year, saving the people
all that interest.
Anyway the $100,000 is not enough to build a dock. It will take more
than twice that to erect a permanent one, and certainly no one will want the
money spent for a wooden building. *■
The city now contemplates waiting until the people vote additional rev
enue, then combining it with this and erecting a modern, sanitary, fireproof
municipal dock, cold storage and public market building that will be a money
maker for the cify from the start. *
Legal quibbles have delayed the cold storage proposition temporarily,
but plans will all be made ready, and by next year the decks will be cleared
so that this fine project can be put through. With it probably will be a prop
osition to buy the additional waterfront up to the bend north of the present
dock. The space below the bridjp is rapidly being filled by the city with
small manufacturing plants that are more than paying the interest and sink
ing fund charges on that property.
The whole municipal dock business of the city is in fact getting in fine
shape. By next year the city, it is believed, will be ready to expand and put
the city into the position of being able to absolutely dominate the water
That $100,000 in the dock fund is all right. It is working and paying its
own way until the people get ready to have it used for the great forward
The Brute and the Man
Like most of us, John H. Patterson of Dayton, has two personalities.
Aa the official head of the National Cash Register Co. he was the strong,
capable, remorseless captain of industry—a Napoleon of Big Business, rush-
Ing pitilessly over all obstacles, destroying everything that crossed his path.
And Uncle Sam prosecuted and convicted him, and sentenced him to a
year in the jail at Troy, Ohio.
Whereat the world was satisfied and said: "Serves him right!"
Then came catastrophe—the awful floods in Ohio, leaving death, destruc
tion and human suffering in their wake.
Throwing off the habit of the captain of industry, John H. Patterson, the
MAN, stepped forth—and all that tremendous energy, that forceful execu
tive ability and wonderful capacity for doing things, were exerted for the
welfare of others.
And now there goes up a prayer to the president that John H. Patterson
be pardoned and saved the ignomy of a term in jail.
For those who saw nothing to admire in the keen, selfish, remorseless cap
tain of industry, who rose to industrial and financial success on the pros
trate forms of his competitors, now see much to admire, and even to love, in
John H. Patterson, the MAN. i
So it is with most of us. There is much good in everybody—and its en
emy is Selfishness. There is much happiness for all of us—in living and doing
for others.
And man rises to his noblest estate when he forgets self and serves hu
manity for the love of his kind and the joy of service.
If man only knew, he can easily have the love of his fellows, or their
Hatred. What we give the world, the world gives back to us—and with in
terest. !
And whatever may be the fate of John H. Patterson now, we imagine the
joy in his heart that has come from service to humanity, has overcome the
fear of that prison sentence —for he feels the good he lias done as a MAN.
He '11 be happy yet if the awful flood of the Miami valley washed away
his selfishness of the mere striver for individual success and rescued from that
wreckage John H. Patterson, the man and brother.
There is a lesson here for other money-mad captains of industry.
Hope For The Best
Washingtotn Post bids fair to go into mourning because "there is not a
legislature in any state that has not before it some measure to interfere with
individual rights."
This is not only true of legislatures but of churches, saloons, stores and
factories. No institution composed of numbers of people can long thrive
with individual conduct unrestricted, and mighty few institutions every try
to do it.
Just now the country is aroused over the accursed things that have been
done by individuals who have assumed rights, and it is not at all remarkable
that among some 30,000 or 40,000 new bills in legislatures we have a few pro
hibiting the right of women to wear transparent stockings, or a husband to
kiss his wife in public, or such rights.
Before the improvement clubs waste
their time and energy voting that the
city pay back money paid for water
mains, they should inquire as to wheth
er the city can legally do it..

The Garrison finish of tracfic
